Swedish Cold War build
« on: June 19, 2024, 08:20:51 PM »
Over the next few months planning on completing my Cold War Swedes using 20mm figures from S&S miniatures and various brands of resin and Diecast vehicles. Planning on circa 1981 based army, plus some aircraft.

First up the C303 TBG11  was made by Volvo and was used for a number of roles in the Swedish army. This 1/72 model is from Gecko heavy industries, I have a kit review here https://kampfgruppewillow.blogspot.com/2023/11/volvo-c303-tbg11-gecko-kit-review.html

I have painted it for the Gotland regiment where my fictional invasion will occur in October this year for our Cold War weekend in late September.







Cheers
Matt

Next up a Volvo C303 pansarvarnspjasterrangbil armed with a Pvpj 1110 90 mm recoil-less antitank gun. Another Gecko heavy industries 1/72 piece, I plan to add crew also soon.

I love that gun buggy. It's just so, er.... Swedish.
Em dezembro de '81
Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo
